Zach Karabell: Volatility in Green Mountain Nerve-Racking

Green Mountain Coffee shrugged of David Einhorn’s bashing and spiked 5% Friday after Sun Trust reiterated their buy rating and $9 eps estimate.

"Once David Einhorn talks about a short, they walk away and ask questions later, says Steve Grasso. The Street thinks back to Lehman. He has an incredible record on the short side.”

”If you’re interested in Green Mountain, I’d only play it with options,” says Pete Najarian. “Limit your risk.”

If I’m going to pick a coffee stock, I’d go long Starbucks , says Zach Karabell. The volatility in Green Mountain alone makes me nervous. Clearly people are making bets based on Einhorn's comments.
